Non-GP training posts 'could be capped' under radical plan to boost GP numbers


The short term boost in GP numbers will be more than countered by newly trained GPs leaving as they feel forced to do something they do not want to do. A profession which has to force people against their will will be even less attractive when filled with miserable resentful people. In addition, denying specialist training after 7 years to those who started out with an aim to do something specific will make medicine a less attractive option for all entrants to medical school. Those that can will go abroad for further training after F2.
